For now I have none.
But I want to get few things back someday:

- a fabric doll that's also a flower, called Flowergirl;
- a colorful spring to play hand to hand;
- domino;
- 50- 1000 pieces puzzle;
- a deck of cards;
- marbles.  :lol:

Here are my games, as of this date...

Posted ImagePosted Image

As you can see, I have 2 1,000 piece puzzles, both of which I've finished, The Spirograph you see on the bottom of that same pile is in the original box from when I got it in the early '60s. the white plain box in that pile is a wooden Chinese Checkers board with non plastic marbles, the red box above that is Checkers/Chess/Backgammon set. you can see the MONDO Crayola Crayon box which has all the colors ever produced in it, Clue and Connect 4 were bought last month.  In the middle are a pack of UNO cards, A Trivial Pursuit Baby Boomers edition, and Jenga.  First stack, The Original Memory matching game, UBI the geography game[thats got "JEOPARDY" type rules],  Sorry, the classic game, bought last month. Monopoly, my original set from the sixties, next to that is "Pass The Pigs" a game from the early '90s, and VERY INTERESTING and FUN to PLAY! The 'Dice' are PIG figurines! The next three are RISK, world domination game, DOGFIGHT, WW I aircraft aireal war game and Deluxe Scabble, with a plastic 'Lazy Susan' type board, and all the tiles and holders are still lacquered wood!  On the bottom, is SUPER Deluxe Monopoly, produced by The Franklin Mint.  Gold plated pieces, all the ORIGINAL movement ones!  Houses and Hotels. Extra sturdy cards both Property and The 'Chance' & 'Community Chest' cards.  I also have 4 decks of ordinary cards, two are Coca Cola Polar Bear decks, one is a mini deck that fits in your palm and the forth is a 'Bee' brand deck. It's funny, but no one ever visits who wants to play!  despite knowing this, I am on the same quest that rhyv is on.  I still have to get the Mouse Trap game, Parchesi, Trouble, and a couple others. There's always the future!

He's been right next to my monitor for over a year now.

(not this exact figure, mine's a little different. It doesn't have the same stand, the waist sash goes to the left side of his leg rather than the center, and my figure's arms are more visible with the cape blowing back more, and my figure is standing more upright + looking down, from the looks of it -- those are the major differences, and I keep spotting more so I'll shut up).

The exact panel the figure's pose is based on:

Makin' Bacon!  :bacon:

Growing up, my parents bought this as a family game.  After receiving what must have been an extremely awkward answer from my parents when he asked what "makin' bacon" meant, my brother had the understanding that pigs turned into bacon if they touched one another :lol:  

More recent editions list that position as an "Oinker"...which, while less charming, would have been more child-friendly I suppose!

Had a little photo shoot this morning...

These little guys are Kubrick, similar to Lego but have fuller bodies, have better attention to detail, and are more maneuverable. I've never seen them sold outside of Japan and apparently they're highly collectible. I just used to get them because they look cool.

Posted Image
Got all 3 of these at a garage sale in Washington state back in the 90s. I have no idea who or what the little alien guy is but he has character so I had to get him. His two buddies need no intro.

Posted Image
The Japanese squad. Racer X wasn't being cooperative so I had to tape his feet down so that he could stand properly.

Posted Image
Kubrick versions of Gene Simmons and Shatner Kirk with....ME! That's right, my very own JohnnyBlaze figure. :yes: I made this back in the late 90s when I made action figures of myself and all 5 of my brothers. I gave those figures to each brother as part of a Christmas present [normal gift + their own action figure]. All 6 Blaze figures closely or somewhat resembled each person (with a matching accessory, mine had a joint :yes: :lol:). I had to dismantle and combine figures and paint here and there etc. I don't look like that anymore but in the 90s I DID wear khakis and polos like that with my hair not too different from that figure. Little JB has the head of a Power Ranger and the body of some basic Playschool figure. Quick use of a permanent black marker to adjust the hairstyle completed the job.
Funnily, one of my bros has had his action figure on his desk at work for nearly 20 years :lol: . His co-workers laugh at it because it does look like him. For his, I combined a Bruce Wayne figure with a Lando Calrissian head and did a little bit of painting on the clothes :lol:
